Serve Rhode Island recruits and mobilizes volunteers in times of natural disasters

Natural disaster volunteersSince 2010, Serve Rhode Island has played a key role in the state by recruiting and mobilizing thousands of volunteers who has responded to a range of natural disasters in our state. 

Serve Rhode Island is the only statewide volunteer center that has the ability to recruit volunteers through its Volunteer Portal and mobilize volunteers when needed. Our agency has partnered with key emergency response organizations over the last four years and has seen the invaluable impact that volunteers have made in disaster relief and response efforts.
